    Is it safe to just ride using double toe straps with or without clips?

    i ride a brakeless track bike on the road for winter training. since the early 1980's i've ridden campagnolo track pedals with toe clips and single toe straps.

    myself, i would not ride a fixed gear without toe clips.
    i only put on the second strap for hillclimb challenges in stupid-big gears.

    i do use deep cleats on my shoes which help prevent coming unclipped on high rpm descents. it also allows you to ride with less tension on the straps for more comfort when just spinning along the flat roads.

    regards
